confidence

But you must not forget this one thing, dear friends: A day is like a thousand years to the Lord, and a thousand years is like a day.  The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent.  But the day of the Lord will come as unexpectedly as a thief. Then the heavens will pass away with a terrible noise, and the very elements themselves will disappear in fire, and the earth and everything on it will be found to deserve judgment.” – 2 Peter 3:8-10, New Living Translation.

“But as for us, the Lord is our God, and we have not abandoned him. Only the descendants of Aaron serve the Lord as priests, and the Levites alone may help them in their work.  They present burnt offerings and fragrant incense to the Lord every morning and evening. They place the Bread of the Presence on the holy table, and they light the gold lampstand every evening. We are following the instructions of the Lord our God, but you have abandoned him.  So you see, God is with us. He is our leader. His priests blow their trumpets and lead us into battle against you. O people of Israel, do not fight against the Lord, the God of your ancestors, for you will not succeed!” – 2 Chronicles 13:10-12, New Living Translation.

“’My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,’” says the Lord.
    “’And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.
 For just as the heavens are higher than the earth,
    so my ways are higher than your ways
    and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.’” –  Isaiah 55:8-9, New Living Translation

“Don’t be fooled; the day of judgment is coming.  The people of Jericho in Joshua chapter 6 had a long time to get right with God.  They thought they were safe in their city behind strong, thick walls, but only Rahab and her family were safe….Will our confidence lie in us or in Him?” – quote from my pastor
